Seems to me any "rumors" regarding upcoming Macs will be pretty anticlimactic until the Intel-based machines arrive. Afterall, what could possibly show up, other than minor speed increases or maybe an updated video card? I currently use two Powerbooks, and I'm itching to get their Intel-based successor. The greatest benefit I'm hoping for is being able to run PC applications with a much "thinner" emulator, and at much greater speed. For someone in my current position, Apple's computer offerings are like a black hole until the new architecture goes on sale. I haven't felt this way since the makers of machines that ran CP/M announced that they were switching to DOS.
